. they are looking for somebody to lead the charge against the nra. it is an effort worthy of your talents and your money. of course, mayor bloomberg does have the funds for it. in fact, while the nra spent $17 million on the 2012 election mayor bloomberg has a net worth of $22 billion. if money can, in fact, shape public opinion mayor bloomberg could bury the nra. today the mayor was evasive whether he would put his money towards the cause, but he did point to another leader who bloomberg is saying could do even more than mayor bloomberg himself can. >> well, i've got 350-- >> what are you going to do with your money? >> well, let's say it's going to be all given way. stanley mcchrystal has more credibility than i ever will have in terms of guns and the damage guns could do. >> jennifer: that's right the third leader to head the gun control general mcchrystal in afghanistan. today general mcchrystal called for much stricter gun laws. >> i spent a career carrying m-16s and it fires a 223 caliber round at 3,000 feet per second. when it hits a human body the affects are devastating. it is designed to
in the heated debate of gun control legislation. within the last hour, nra confirmed it will attend the meeting at the white house with vice president biden set for tomorrow. and also today, exactly two years after she was critically wounded in a mass shooting, former congresswoman give fords is launching a new campaign for countering the gun lobby's power and money. she and her husband mark kelly write in a "usa today" op-ed, quote, americans for responsible solutions engaging millions of people about ways to reduce gun violence and funding political activity nationwide. legislators will no longer have reason to fear the gun lobby. >>> and the group mayors against illegal guns headed by new york city's mayor michael bloomberg is also out with a new ad featuring the mother of christina taylor green. she is the youngest victim killed in the tucson shooting. >> my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. >> and th
that the nra and its affiliates push so hard against. >> all they have to do is just accept reasonable restrictions. nobody is trying to take away your gun. nobody is trying to take away your right to go hunting or target shooting or have protection in your home. simply we're trying to have some reasonable things so people aren't killed. >> today the mayor's anti-illegal guns group is going on air with an ad that invokes sandy hook and features the mother of the youngest victim of that tucson shooting. >> 20 heart-broken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? >> indeed. the same question could be asked by a mother and father of one of the latest shooting victims in our daily tally of gun casualties, including a 15-year-old girl shot and killed early today in milwaukee. in maryland last night a gunman left one dead and one critically wounded before t
armed guards at banks and restaurants, the nra's vision of the promised land. the nra never said anything like that. they have a very -- >> bob: yes, they did. >> andrea: no, they did not. they have a high approval rating. in our country we have armed guards. we have them at banks and certain areas of new york city. police on the street that are armed with guns. we are not some lawless third world country. it doesn't make sense. >> greg: what is wrong with a police state? i'd rather have a police state than criminal state. >> dana: no, you wouldn't. >> greg: yes, i would. >> dana: no. >> bob: you would be the first one picked up. >> dana: okay. i'll buy that. if i could comment on the media part of it and the reporting. i love the factbe part of it. >> gregpress secretary for repun administration when you deal with reporters that come up with in this kind of a storyline the only thing you can do is arm yourself with facts and repeat them over and over and over again. that's why the nra approval rating is higher than the liberals would like to see it at this point. now have they g
it, but most americans believe the nra propaganda. the nra buys scholars. they buy statistics. it's just wrong. >> lies. total lies. britain has strong gun control, for example. and averages 35 gun murders a year. america has very lax gun control and has 11,000. britain is about a fifth the size of america. i can do simple math. japan has the toughest gun control in the world. they have two or three murders a year. australia had a massacre in the '90s. they brought in a ban on all main high-powered guns and assault rifles and so on. they have had no mass shootings since. this is not rocket science. it's there to be had. the problem is that the nra, and i'm sure mr. jones is a big fan of theirs and probably helps them. >> he probably thinks they're way, way,way too much part of the establishment. he's way, way to the right of the nra. >> the political power the nra now wield means that politicians are too coward to say anything. i have people say to me, you're so brave. hot is brave about wanting to stop 20 more children getting murders? >> i don't think it's the nra power. it's pe
, colorado, and awful testimony coming out of that all week. if you are reporting this as well, that the nra has been invited to meet with the biden task force, so that joe biden and his group reaching out to try to at least touch base with, of course, the most vigorous and best organized opponents of any kind of gun lobby. >> it would be shock if anything they didn't. they're not going to have a chance if there isn't an effort to reach out the nra and see if there is any possibility of common ground, and if there's not, there's not. i'm struck by what could be different. during the whole assault weapons ban, yes, there is always in some of the things that victims -- that the victim families can get involved in a way that can move political debate, but it was still, i would argue, still sort of a political debate that wasn't personal. the newtown families, gabby giffords and mark kelly, folks in aurora, i -- you know, the power of these victims' families that could have on this political debate don't underestimate them. >> i know he was a hero to both of you. first to you. chuck todd, this i
their gun control agenda for two reasons. number one it's unconstitution. >> john: and the nra would never exploit a gun tragedy. with me know is john rosenthal co-founder of stop handgun violence and wrote "common sense about kids & guns." thank you for coming on with us tonight. thank you. >> what do you think about what is being considered about the task force. >> i strongly support the second amendment, but as the supreme court ruled the second amendment means you can't ban guns but you can put reasonable restrictions on how they're sold. in this country there isn't even a simple background check for all gun sales. literally 40% to 50% of gun sold every day are legally sold by private dealers to private individuals, including the mentally ill, and terrorists. al-qaida comes undetected to buy guns at gun shows. and the government says that's fine. the nra has bought and sold congress. they own the republican party. they've intimidated the democrats into submission, and although i think president biden biden's initiatives are just common sense the democrats in the house are going to run
violence. >> apart from the politics involved, there's money, a lot of money involved. critics say the nra is almost too powerful to go up against. so they're feeling somewhat powerless against that big of a lobby group. to me it seems this is where the targets might lie, to try to raise enough money to go head to head, but is that really possible? >> well, i think it is possible, and you're right, money does maic a difference in communicating information and getting a message out. for my part, as a member of the congressional task force. i'm planning on reintroducing, actually, a piece of legislation that i introduced last session, specifically having to do with mental health issues, which i think is a huge part of the concern we have dealing with here. i formed a mental health task force back here at tucson. at every level, i believe, local state and federal officials, elected officials must engage the people they serve. as a second amendment supporter, i boulevard there's a right to bear arms, as confirmed by the supreme court, but i believe there have to be some limits. the assault wea

to gun control as we noted, vice president is going to meet this week with the nra that made news just being noted a matter of hours ago. it's to try to create more of that pressure. the president has made it very clear that not only did he win this election but said that the republicans obviously have a struggling brand, this wlous is communicated so perhaps more campaign-style events where the president was in michigan, he was in pennsylvania, he was just across the river in virginia, here as well. perhaps gabby giffords by his side or some of the survivors from newtown. i think that's some of the ways they believe to add pressure to bring across the republicans to not be an obstruction to him being able to accomplish some of those policies specifically on gun control and also trying to use some of those democrats like a-rated democrats from the nra, joe manchin, obviously, bob casey of pennsylvania, both may be able to add to that pressure specifically as it speaks to the issue of gun control. >> david, i want to talk to you about women and not in a brent musberger sort of way but a
the other side is and how reasonable people, including nra members, including gun owners, reasonable people will agree that there are things we can do to minimize the risk here, to reduce the harm and the carnage and we have to do them. >> i thought he did a good job. i think piers did an excellent job of restraint. i don't think i would have shown that kind of restraint. he made a couple points that are very important i thought, that in flaund they have 37 people killed by guns a year. we have over 11,000 killed. we have a real problem with guns. let me show a bit of ad that the governor mentioned you were in. here is part of the ad you made for the group mayors against illegal guns. let's listen. >> my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. we have to demand a plan. >> how do you tell a gentleman in the united states senate or congress or a woman that you may lose your career over this issue. i know we h

of it is sort of organization that the nra has longstanding organization in washington versus emotion and what the gun control lobby is trying to do is keep people, remind people of situations like in tucson two years ago or aurora or newtown, and when you talk to people who have been working with the biden task force and who have been trying to rally new support here they say they have about 30 days after one of these massacres before public opinion starts to go back to other kinds of issues and so they're trying to grab that window to make something different this time. >> do they believe that there is something different, though because this was about those 20 young kids rather than a normal kinds of awful tragic shootings? >> that's exactly right, charlie. they think that something has changed here there's a boiling point and the strategy is to take the awful nature of this most recent mass shooting and to try to do two things one, break the nra's membership apart, to argue basically the nra membership is different than the leadership of the nra and also t
